    I went and googled best UW monitors and found this article featuring it as the best option. I'm personally using a ViewSonic that costs $700 but go for more if you have the budget
    The OP (and me) are referring to Super-Ultrawides. 32:9

    There are 2 options from Samsung.
    1. last years model (LC49HG9.....or usually called CHG90), which is 49", 32:9, but has 3840x1080 resolution. It is a 144Hz monitor though.
    - lots of reviews to be found, usually the comments say that it is good, but people notice the resolution is not great (1080).
    - from what I could tell, the links you posted refer to this model, which is the older model from last year.
    2. this year's newest model (LC49RG9.... or usually called CRG90), which is same size and dimension, but has 5120x1440 resolution. It is a 120Hz monitor.
    - this is the one the OP is referring to. Recently selling only in the last couple of months. Some places it's hard to find, but it is available. Very expensive, and not a lot of reviews to be found yet for this new one. But resolution is much higher than the previous model.

    I have it for several months now. I also have 1080ti and 8700k

    ZERO regrets.

    I can't tell you what graphics settings you could run in PC2 since I really don't play it anymore.
    But other titles I'm running pretty quite graphics settings and don't really have any issues with frame rates:
    -ACC settings are certainly not 'epic', but pretty high. I typically have 75-90fps and can get it a lot higher if needed. But I prefer nice graphics as long as my fps is somewhere in that range.
    - iRacing, frame rates almost whatever you want. Easily more than the 120hz max.
    - AC, similar to iRacing. Easy frame rates, but depends on ContentManager/SOL/Shaders patch features you might activate. You will bog it down if you activate all the eye candy, but much of that is interesting but not really needed.

    I like the Freesync option as well. Works well for me with my 1080ti even if not certified, but I'm still experimenting with it. Sometimes I find some flickering when I use the ultimate free sync setting... still experimenting with that.

    The HDR is also nice. Only complaint there is that the lighting zones (or whatever they are called) are a bit strange whenever you have a really dark screen with limited areas of graphics. Example can be the intro screens of games which are often black, but with logo/text in the middle. When in HDR mode, you see the lighting zone really obvious in the centre (where the text/logo of the game usually appears). Never noticed any issue while in a game, but it's obvious when the conditions are like that.

    Hope it helps. I think the 1080ti is still plenty to drive this monitor. Your expectations might be far higher than mine though. For all the games I play, I've not found one yet where I try higher graphics settings and see that I'm missing something, or sacrificing something in order to keep frame rates.

    I'm using this CRG9 with Track IR. It's quite a good option from my perspective.
    The CRG9 is pretty wide. Track IR makes it easy to get just a bit more without much issue.
    Track IR on smaller screens is disorienting for me. But on the big 32:9, it actually becomes quite natural because you are already turning your head to see the sides of the screen anyway..... And you don't need a massive amount of virtual movement. Just a bit.
